“Fantastic model of the town”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

My kids love looking at model towns so this was great for them. They were also giving away free pottery "by kids for kids" which impressed them even more! We bought the treasure hunt but were on our way out so will do it next visit.

“Get there for a short visit”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

You don't need to spend more than 20 minutes there but you should go see this model of San Gimignano in 1300: it gives an overview of what the city looked like. Entrance is free.

“Free to visit (minus treausure hunt)”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We visited the San Gimignano 1300 without doing the treasure hunt and still found the miniature model fascinating. It's fun to get up close and test out different angles with a camera. Also the employees were more than willing to stand with us and answer our questions (they spoke English, Italian and French) about the history and the 72 towers that used to stand in the city. We didn't sign up for the tour, but left a donation since this visit was included in the complete Civic Museum visit ticket (only €7.50) which gives you access to up to five different munipal museums, including the Big Tower (Torre Grossa).
